Procedural Justice relates to the idea of fairness between citizens and public safety agencies. It is a belief that the administration of justice, the allocation and use of departmental resources, and the resolution of conflicts in an impartial manner all produce trust and promote positive relationships between police/public safety and the communities they serve. 

The DSA Procedural Justice Training Institute has been constructed for college and university police/public safety agency leaders and is taught by expert faculty. From command staff to first line supervisors, college and university sworn and non-sworn leaders who participate in Institute courses will be prepared to create and strengthen the ethical culture within their public safety organization that will aid in ensuring fair and impartial campus policing practices.
